A little less KINDness. Actually a good thing.

Healthy snack bars by KINDI am tired of grabbing a quick, on-the-go “power” bar for my kids (and for me), only to find yet again that we’re just eating a glorified candy bar. When I choose to put candy in my kids’ lunch, I want it to be mindfully (yay! candy!), and when I reach for a healthy snack, I actually want it healthy.

And? I want healthy to taste awesome. Is that so much to ask for?

My household is really digging the new KIND minis,
which are smaller versions of their original gluten/wheat/dairy-free KIND snack bars. They’re approximately 100
calories, made with recognizable ingredients and they are truly,
genuinely super yummy.

The Fruit & Nut Delight bars are flying out
of the house and into lunch boxes (and stashed in my purse) faster
than I can buy them.  – Barbara

KIND minis are sold in major grocery stories and delis, or you can order directly from the KIND fruit+nut website.

    Kind bars are awesome! Our 3 year old loves them as well as these http://www.powercrunchbar.com/ which we get at the Vitamin Shoppe… but Whole Foods carries them too.

    These are hard to beat for their flavor and 50/50 protein to carb ratio. Our favorite is the French Vanilla Creme. A tip about these… for best taste and crunching keep and serve from the freezer.

    For the kids that seem to only eat carbs these bars are a great way to get some protein in them. Of our two kids one seems to only eat protein and the other only carbs!
